Hi guys I got this danish childhood lot today. Very strange lot, most of the cloth and weapons is gone and 2 broken figures :( but most of the figures is mint or in very great shape and others have a few smaller damages. Yak Face is one of the mint figures to my big surprise. Again sorry about the bad yellow light, I hope soon we will get some sun so I do not need to use light :D

I found this 4 figures for sale and bought them from a really nice woman. She told me she was a huge star wars fan in the 80s when she was a child and that she only got this 4 figures. Looks like she was a Leia fan and then she also wanted the boy friend :lol: She told me she never played with them and they have only been on display. Solo, Leia bespin and Leia endor looks mint. But leia white cape have lost her eyes brows and it is Non-sonic weld but the rest on her is again mint. No damage on the hands, cape etc. etc. and all weapons is original :D

Ok 6 months later I found a new childhood lot :D It is not as easy as it was years ago.

I bought this little lot from a nice old man, he sold his son star wars toy, since he had not been playing with it since the 80s :lol: It was a very little lot and the weapons was missing. It surprised me the weapons and cloth was missing since the figures looks nearly new. But there was something cool in the lot, a PBP Luke Bespin with caramel boots :D

Yes I must say it is getting harder, there is more and more of this guys who only buy for a profit and more collectors, so the childhood lots is going
very fast in my country when they are coming up for sale. A few years ago they could be for sale for days or weeks. Now 5 or 10 min after they are put up for sale then they are sold :shock: Unless the price is crazy.

Thanks for the kind words :D

Today I got another little loft find. Here is the story.

A saw a huge childhood lot for sale here in denmark, there was some really cool items in that lot, many vehicles, many figures and an old vintage school bag. I told seller that I would like to buy his childhood lot, but he told me it was sold a few min. ago so I was to late :(
I would have loved to have had that old school bag. I asked him if he had more or if he had sold all of it. He told he had found a little bit more, I bought what he had, minus a few beater figures. I did not get much, but I think I got some cool items :D

I got a cut front of a tri-logo box x-wing fighter. It is better than nothing, but what kid would cut in a box :? I would have loved to have had that box in the my collection.

Then I got 2 instructions for a speeder bike and a CAP-2.

I also got his pencil case, first I thought that one was vintage, but it was from 1997 :roll:

The best part of the little lot was this german toy catalog from 1984 from Parker, I think it is cool. I took a picture from the front and the back, I have never seen this catalog before 8) It have seen better days, but it is cool :D

Hi Mark thanks for the very kind words :D I think I will keep it, until I find a box that I can pay for, I will try to remember that you want it, so I can help you in the future :wink:
